Published in Better Homes and Gardens in 1946, and admired by many from the street, this updated Cape Code has a story to tell. Lovingly known as “The House that Jack Built”, this sweet residence is bursting with character and quintessential charm throughout with wide-plank hardwoods, French doors and windows, planked ceilings, built-ins, and farmhouse embellishments. The spacious guest house is complete with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, and living area (this is a flexible space for an au pair, in-law unit, teen hangout, office, and/or gym use – you decide!).
This pancake-flat, over one-acre property was originally owned by the founders of Lafayette’s famed Orchard Nursery and the homeowners continue the traditions of growing pumpkins in the fall and harvesting 30± holly trees in the winter (to sell at Orchard Nursery and Diablo Foods every year). Flourished gardens offer changing colors for year-round delight while daily play and entertaining ease is provided through many outdoor venues, level lawns, brick patios, and covered porches.
This home is located in a coveted, close-in pocket of the Reliez Valley with a nearby path to Springhill Elementary, Acalanes High School and the Stanley Middle School bus stop. Other nearby amenities include Valley Pool (next door), local commute routes (Hwy. 24/680 and BART), and Briones Regional Park trails.
